Since this article is linked prominently on the front page, it seems like a concise introduction would be a good idea for the benefit of random people.    Right now it seems to be focused more on 'how it's going' than 'what it is'.  :) Maybe something like:

There's something that confuses me (and maybe others, too?): Sometimes there are both folders and their subfolders in the list. Now what does it mean, if a folder is marked [DONE]? Does it mean all files from that folder and the subfolders or done, or only the files in that specific folder?

Examples:
 +
<pre>
 +
reactos/lib/keyboard/ [OK:encoded]
 +
reactos/lib/keyboard/kbdbe/
 +
reactos/lib/keyboard/kbdda/
 +
...
 +
</pre>

There are no files in keyboard, so I guess, everything is clean.
  
Due to recent pressing concerns within the project about the legal defensibility of some reverse-engineering practices, the repository and official downloads have been taken down pending a full audit of the project's code.  Only the audited branch of the svn tree is accessible to the general public, and registered developers will continue to move directories into it that are determined to be 'clean' according to an updated IP policy.

reactos/lib/user32/ [DONE] [A:jimtabor]

reactos/lib/user32/controls/ [DONE] [WINE] [A:jimtabor]
 +
reactos/lib/user32/include/
 +
reactos/lib/user32/misc/
 +
reactos/lib/user32/resources/
 +
reactos/lib/user32/windows/ [DONE] [WINE]

</pre>

This is even more confusing, as the parentfolder is marked clean and some subfolders are also and some are not. If a folder is completely done, why not remove the subfolders from the list? This would make the list more clear. If it only means that all files in that specific folder are clean, than it should be stated somewhere to prevent confusing.

This process is expected to take a matter of months.  The overall progress will be shown on the project's home page until the audit is complete.

Unneccesary subfolders in the list?

There's something that confuses me (and maybe others, too?): Sometimes there are both folders and their subfolders in the list. Now what does it mean, if a folder is marked [DONE]? Does it mean all files from that folder and the subfolders or done, or only the files in that specific folder? Examples:

reactos/lib/keyboard/ [OK:encoded]
reactos/lib/keyboard/kbdbe/ 
reactos/lib/keyboard/kbdda/
...

There are no files in keyboard, so I guess, everything is clean.

reactos/lib/user32/ [DONE] [A:jimtabor]
reactos/lib/user32/controls/ [DONE] [WINE] [A:jimtabor]
reactos/lib/user32/include/
reactos/lib/user32/misc/
reactos/lib/user32/resources/
reactos/lib/user32/windows/ [DONE] [WINE]

This is even more confusing, as the parentfolder is marked clean and some subfolders are also and some are not. If a folder is completely done, why not remove the subfolders from the list? This would make the list more clear. If it only means that all files in that specific folder are clean, than it should be stated somewhere to prevent confusing. --ThePhysicist 03:40, 3 March 2006 (CET)
